The Lyrics

Rummy, we once chuckled at your quirky brain.
Rummy, you've gone off the deep end, now you're insane.
Synapses are gone and the bad plaques are here;
Sly Rummy once just insincere.
Rummy's brain's now goo. Is he through,

Run off? 'Cause 41's son's blind, no way.
Rummy, keep him on despite neural decay.
He has got appalling gall--
Keening mendacious squall.
Rummy, nothing's true, said by you.

Rummy, hasn't told truth since 2003.
Rummy, when matter began to atrophy.
Wrought a fiasco in wind-blown sand,
With rocks in his head then, he had no plan.
Rummy, pebbles smoothed--he's no clue.

Rummy, a demented grin upon your face.
Rummy, time to take you to a happy place.
No spark when synapses fire.
You've made Iraq a quagmire.
Rummy's brain is goo. . .has no clue.

I recommend a read in which Rummy's ravings have been rendered into verse: "Pieces of Intelligence: The Existential Poetry of Donald Rumsfeld," by Hart Seely. Example:What we are doingIs that which is doableIn the way we're currently doing it

Is it just me, or is Rumsfeld starting to seem more and more like the Billy Martin of the Bush Maladministration? And I'm a Yankee Fan, and that was no compliment! The difference is, instead of having been hired and fired five times, he's offered his resignation to the President five times, and it's only been accepted once! That was by Jerry Ford! Rumsfeld also served as a Congressman from Illinois in the Sixties, and was appointed by Richard Nixon to be Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity. That's right, Rumsfeld was in charge of "the War On Poverty." That's like making Bush Secretary of Education!

most of this is because Rumsfeld is Bush's bitch... Dubya knows that Rumsfeld is the path of least resistance when it comes to warfare. You have to keep someone like this in office if conquering the Middle East is your ultimate goal. Unfortunately, they seem to have forgotten just how expensive this endeavor is....

He is the same brilliant and witty Secretary of Defense as he always was. The only thing that has changed is that your spine, which got stiff for a few months, has turned to jello. That is typical of ultra-liberal morons like you. When the going gets tough, you wimps lash out like worthless whining windbags. I have no use for illegal aliens, but I propose to let THEM stay in the U.S. and let YOU take their place in their foreign homelands. We don't need your scummy kind around here. You don't deserve any of the privileges, especially the privilege of voting.

Lurker, Lurker, Lurker. Just a few days ago, you professed if not an appreciation of the First Amendment at least a grudging understand of it. Now, as your undoubted hero (and like Rummy, an Alzhheimers victim) Ronald Reagan once put it: there you go again. And the self-loathing transference continues. You are beyond my help, Lurker. With a few modifications, the song above would work well with "Lurker" substituted for "Rummy."

Ironic to see Lurker, the pussy who don't post, rambling on about a stiff spine.

The next politician I like will be the first one I EVER liked, with no exceptions. Though I wish I could talk out of both sides of my mouth, and lie with a straight face like all of them do. 5's from this anarchist.

Well, Lurker, I'm a Libertarian, not a liberal. There's an important difference between the two. But since I hold certain views that are liberal, I don't dismiss the entire ideology like you do. Believe it or not, there are things that I agree with conservatives on as well. You would do well to keep a more open mind. One thing I am against is useless warfare though. Unfortunately, your current regime wastes more money on that than anything else....

"He is the same brilliant and witty Secretary of Defense as he always was." Hence the problem! Alvin: You remember the joke? Bush and Rumsfeld are walking through the West Wing, and somebody yells out, "Hey, Rummy!" And they both say, "Yes?"
